Spring craft finds including a cherry blossom cake tutorial, beaded floral bracelet DIY, upcycled can DIY, free crochet pattern for a circle vest, and a free sewing pattern for a hexagon coaster.
I decided to do another week of Spring! And I think I may for a couple more weeks. I feel like it really doesn’t start to feel like Summer until June, at least for me, so we’ll see. If you have a request, drop me a line below!
I always love to share awesome patterns, tutorials, and finds with ya! If you would like to see a review on any of them, feel free to drop me a line!
Tasty Find – Cherry Blossom Cake (Written Recipe/Instructions AND a Video) from Wilton:
A few weeks ago, Todd and I went to Washington DC to see the Cherry Blossoms. We were so lucky that they were in peak bloom while we were there. When I saw this cake, I couldn’t help but share! Now you can have beautiful Cherry Blossoms anytime of the year.
Jewelry/Beauty Find – Spring Lilacs Bracelet (Free Jewelry DIY) from Fusion Beads:
This bracelet is created using a stitch called the Daisy Chain, which Fusion Beads has a how-to on. The Daisy Chain creates those fun beaded flowers you see in between the leaves. Love the green and purple together in this bracelet.
DIY Find – Recycled Aluminum Can Butterfly Embellishments (Includes Photos) from Crafts Unleashed:
Can you believe these butterflies are made from a recycled soda can?! In this tutorial, Shaunte uses an embossing/die cutting machine to cut them out, and emboss the details. What an incredible way to recycle!
Yarny Find – Whirlwind Circle Vest (Free Crochet Pattern from Be a Crafter):
Pattern is given for size large, but for other sizes, you must buy the inexpensive PDF – I bought mine quite some time ago. I love the look of this top. I think it would look so awesome over a dress, and be right on trend. Maz used a wool blend, but if you plan on using this in the heat, try a cotton blend like (affiliate link) Berroco’s Modern Cotton DK.
Stitching Find – Make an EPP Hexagon Coaster (Free Sewing Pattern with Photos) from Swoodsen Says:
If you are like me, and wondering what the heck “EPP” is, it is English Paper Piecing. In this tutorial, Stephanie shows us how to make the hexagons against a paper pattern (which she provides). A simple whipstitch joins them together, and you have a fun hexagon coaster. These would make an excellent gift with some tea/coffee and a new mug, or small vase holding one flower. Mother’s Day will be here soon!
